So i'm a 3.5 with 4.0 groundstrokes on good days and I currently wield 2 2009 model Rebel 95s. I try to hit variable spin serves to get my opponents off guard, but mostly to maintain a type of consistency. I have a kick serve that doesn't kick more half the time, a slice serve with minimal movement, a hard topspin serve to replace my flat when i need to get it in, and a low staying flat serve. Again the flat serve is low staying probably cause i have no pop. I love ripping the penetrating flat forehand and hitting nice high bouncing or low flowing defensive shots to set up my stronger groundstrokes and touch shots including short angles and dropshots). My goal is to be a all courter, but my volleys are horrible. I tend to not look at the ball and miss the ball altogether(yes its that bad). I don't break strings too often, but can tell when my strings are dead or about to break. My friends are who are at a 4.0 level(self rated) playing round robin matches say i have decent groundstrokes but am lacking a bit of pop on my serves and volleys. For sure the problems with volleying are in confidence, form, and footwork. Though, on serves I used to easily hit fence in one bounce, but now not i'm not getting enough pop into the ball. This was copy and pasted from my string thread, but I would love some input on a racket change. I'm going to receive some Pro Staff 6.1 Classic STRETCHES. I fell in love with the pop and feel of the PSC6.1 but it was too wild for me. I need my dense string patterns, I just do. So i found some on the classified section and bought them impulsively. Dense string pattern with the pro staff pedigree? Is it a dream come true? Only time to tell. I want to stick a good amount of lead in the handle to add the mobility i know i'll need for the quicker moments in tennis. I'm losing weight focusing on getting more flexible and getting my cardio up. From the 2009 Model Exo3 Rebel to the prestigious(though it isn't the prestige ironically) Pro Staff 6.1 Classic Stretch. I love the quick racket head speed and feel of the Exo3 Rebel despite its static weight. It has incredible plow through and big sweet spot combined with great comfort. Though its downsides include the muted feel which many people do not enjoy and crap load of difficulty for stringing if ill equipped for the job. Some people say the paint job is horrible as well, but they are just mad cause its a different color then their rackets . I've played the 16x19 pattern PSC and found it uncontrollable and slightly sluggish. But beautiful in all other areas of the game. Im really excited. What do you guys think?
